's assume we go through the fiscal cliff, and i want to ask susan about this first. immigration, corporate tax reform, and investments. immigration, you are not going to do just the dream act, you either do comprehensive immigration or you don't. we have learned, we had a chance to do it, george bush, john mccain, ted ken dirks both wings came and decide they had were going to sabotage it. yeah, maybe the republicans learned a lesson this time but i am a not sure how much. corporate tax reform, sounds great. i covered the 1985-1986 act. the way that was financed was through the corporate tax increased. they have the most skillful treasury secretary around and people on both sides willing to work with the white house and congress, doesn't exist today. and thirdly, when you talk about infrastructure spending investments and spending things to be done with n.i.h. and national science foundation and the like, all the talk now is about debt. it's not about any -- >> we are going to be going into a conversation on -- >> how do you do what glenn's very am beneficiaries -- ambitious envisions. >>

to get the economy back on track. she was talking about about solutions to avert the fiscal cliff. if if you look at how we got here, nothing gets resolved out of washington, it's an abyss that doesn't need to happen. if you just go back and look at the promises made by poth because massachusetts when he was running for office, when he was running for re-election, he talked about working across the aisle he talked about bipartisan solutions he talked about it a lot and the american people expected that the president would keep that promise. but before the ink was even dry, before some of the states had confirmed and finalized their vote totals for this last election, the president comes out with a hyper partisan solution that's his approach. when the president comes out with his plan to raise taxes on some, not renew ores, to threaten middle class families with a tax increase if some people don't get their taxes raised, there already was a bipartisan solution to avert this cliff. just a few months ago, here in this house, we passed a bill with 19 democrat votes. a strong bipartisa

came early. [ applause ] >> stephanie: what? what are your latest thoughts on the fiscal cliff clavin as we call it? >> well, i think we have a lot to learn from what i would call the fiscal spliff from washington state. legalization of marijuana adds to the state's coffers or costs the federal government an equal amount of money to police it from a distance, that's going to be the curious one. so far as the fiscal cliff the dumbest thing -- the republicans are in a situation where you know they're giving two pages of -- we want this. remember, we just -- they're torn out like perforated from the paul ryan plan. they bring them in. okay, tomorrow we'll come back with more. these are the same pages only they have -- is that bourbon on them? >> stephanie: bourbon and cheeto stains on them. >> the truth is -- i think charlie pierce touched on it before. the dumb thing is that they don't immediately go for the middle class tax cuts and let those go through. but they can't give any ground and that, i think proves

: the republican leader. mr. mcconnell: with the fiscal cliff fast approaching, i feel the need to point out something this morning that's perfectly obvious to most americans but which democrats in washington still don't seem to grasp. i'm referring to the fact that any solution to our spending and debt problem has to involve cuts to out-of-control washington spending. i know that might sound obvious to most people but for all the president's talk about the need for a balanced approach, the truth is he and his democratic allies simply refused to be pinned down on any spending cuts. americans overwhelmingly support some level of cuts to government spending as part of a plan to cut the federal deficit. yet, the president will not commit to it. he refuses to lead on the issue. the president seems to think if all he talks about are taxes and that's all reporters write about, somehow the rest of us will magically forget that government spending is completely out of control and that he himself has been insisting on balance. a couple of weeks ago we saw his plan. after four straight trillion-dollar
